As noted as RSPB.org.uk on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, a woman named Sally Arnold was surprised to see an owl imprint on the window pane of their home in Kendal, Cumbria.

Arnold, who came from a vacation, reportedly said that she saw the huge owl imprint when she opened the curtains on their bedroom recently.

“Our first concern was for the welfare of what we suspected was an owl and we opened up the window to check if it was still around.” Sally Arnold was quoted on the report.

“Fortunately, there was no sign of the bird and we can only assume that it had flown away probably suffering from a headache!” Mr. Arnold added.

Apparently, RSPB experts noted on their report that the bird could be a tawny owl based on the shape and size of the imprint left on the window, which also usually can appear on gardens.

“We don’t very often see an imprint of a bird that’s flown into a window that’s this clear and where it’s pretty obvious exactly what kind of birds it is.” RSPB’s Wildlife Enquiries team head Val Osborne was quoted as saying.

“This would have been very uncomfortable for the bird but thankfully it looks like it survived. Sadly, many birds aren’t so lucky.” Osborne added.
